Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

An Evening Mass - Youth Directed

In preparation for Christmas, many of the parish are meeting each evening for Mass.
This 9 day novena is a long standing tradition from the Filipino community.

However, tonight, the mass was sponsored by the youth and young adults.

There is something very special about gathering each evening together as a "Family" to experience Christ not only in the Eucharist, but in the community.

All ages gathered together as a family, a catholic family.

A young adult lector.

Father Uriel using a chair as a prop.

Explaining how the prophet Jeremiah wore a yoke while he preached to signify our burdens.

The presentation of the gifts.

The liturgy of the Eucharist.

Holy Communion

The gift of Christ.

A great reminder that the Church is alive and well, and the youth have not abandoned it! We are finding in our parish that in many ways, the youth are setting the good example for the adults.
